Rated 1 out of 5�by ronjon1969 plastic clips ALL eventually break
as lightweight & compact (when folded) as this easel is, the 2 100% plastic adjustable clips where the item being displayed rests/sits eventually break/snap off after minimal use. you get what you pay for- that is why these are cheap/inexpensive.

Rated 2 out of 5�by partry1 easel is good but clips are not
I have owned five of these easels for about a year. After 6 months I started to notice clip failure. Now every one of the easels are missing the support clips and as of today I still have not been able to find any replacement clips. You would think Quartet would have addressed this problem by now.

Rated 1 out of 5�by Rick Support Clips Break Very Easily
I purchase seven of these units for use at our school. The first time we used them, the clips on three of the units broke... before we could even put the poster board on them. Cheap... cheap.. cheap... DO NOT BUY.

Rated 4 out of 5�by John2014 What a difference these made!
With a previous employer, I frequently was involved w/ public meetings requiring multiple display boards. Once we hauled over 20 wooden easels around to meetings over several days. When the firm purchased a number of Instant Easels, the setup/tear down time was cut in half (not to mention the splinters, frustration, etc.!). I remember the biggest downside being the broken clips and difficulty in finding replacements. I wasn't responsible for this, so didn't think much about it at the time. I just knew I didn't want to be in front of a client with a duct-taped clip on my easel!
Years later I am at a smaller company that recently had a meeting where a couple of the Instant Easels were used. One of them had a broken clip, so I looked at Staples website to order replacements and they weren't shown. I called the store to see if they had them in stock and they acted as if no one had ever asked about this before. I got on Quartet's website and the only mention of clips is in the comments section...people complaining about the difficulty in finding replacements when they break. Enough time has passed...I'm a big fan of the product, just get on the stick about making replacement parts available easily through your distributors!
